An Unfortunate Need


Unfortunately, we need sympathy cards now and then. I found a great card online that I changed just a little to make mine just perfect! Once again, these are the August colors (omitting Rich Razzleberry). I added Sahara Sand and embossed with Gold. The bird is embossed in black and colored in with Aquapainters. All of the edges are sponged with Early Espresso. It turned out to be a very beautiful card and I think the recipient will definitely appreciate it.

  3. This is beautiful Julie!!! This is a favorite stamp set of mine and I've done the bird in similar colors, but never thought to emboss the damask image like that. Lovely!
